Day 34 – “Thou shalt not worry.”

Wednesday, March 30th 2016

Almost slept in this morning, because I was half awake, half asleep having a dream about another me (sort of like having split personality, being in first person when I spoke and then third person when she did), saying that she already set three more alarms for me and that I can go back to sleep after I turned off my real life alarm, except she talked in old English and said things like “Thy clock will ring three times. Thou shalt not worry.” Luckily, I woke up from that half awake, half asleep dream, or else I would have slept in because I turned off my alarm after it rang. 

Today was average, as most people could predict by now. Twitter is still unblocked from our school’s Internet, but I believe it’s because the school is having problems with Google and YouTube, which stopped us from hearing our every day one minute of music before the announcements, but for the national hymn, the teacher doing the announcements had to use his phone, so there was at least that. I also noticed I say “so” way too much, so—I mean—therefore, I will be attempting to stop. On top of that, I noticed I say “such as” a lot as well, when doing English homework research. I need to expand my vocabulary.

Day 3

1st Period (09:10-10:25)
We took more notes on physics. It’s really not all that bad compared to what I’ve been told. I’m quite interested in how light works and the representations of an object in front of a mirror does not look all that complicated. The convex and concave mirrors are probably more complicated than plane, though.

2nd Period (10:35-11:50)
We had a substitute, you can guess how that went. There was a movie playing, Dead Poets Society, I believe. No one was listening, everyone was talking to each other or on their phones and so was I. I browsed Twitter, texted my friend a few times that I was bored (didn’t get an answer, she was probably working and being productive unlike me) and watched YouTube videos, almost laughing in front of the class, because now when I’m bored, I watch Would I Lie To You? clips or full episodes. I recommend it, it’s really funny. Speaking about British related shows, I heard that Gracepoint is a remake of Broadchurch, except with American actors and David Tennant—who has a very strong Scottish accent, so much that we had to put subtitles (I swear, I usually understand him, but for some reason all the characters in this show seem to mumble or something)—talking with an American accent? I’m not saying I don’t like it, because they’re all American (although I really love David Tennant’s accent, don’t change it please), but because it’s the same exact script, from what I have seen. Not a single change for the script was made. What’s the point in doing that? You could have just aired Broadchurch instead of just hiring American actors and rehiring the main character from Broadchurch who is clearly Scottish and that was indicated as so by his partner in crime Ellie Miller (okay, well now that I know he’s faking an accent, then probably they didn’t add in the “What kind of Scott are you?” line in the script, but everything else is the same). I just don’t see the point, honestly.

Lunch (11:50-12:50)
I ate really quickly with my best friend and our friend that is more of an acquaintance to me, I’m not quite sure (is it normal to not be sure whether someone is an acquaintance or friend?). Then the both of them went to get some help on French for tomorrow’s exam, while I went to math class to practice for the quiz and later on my best friend joined me and helped me out, for this reason I’m giving her credit for what I’m about to say next.

3rd Period (12:50-14:05)
THE QUIZ WENT SO WELL! While writing it for a good five to ten minutes, I couldn’t concentrate, but once I really took a look at it, I had no problem. I was uneasy at the end and wasn’t quite sure if I was doing the right thing (my heart was pounding, felt like a roller coaster) until our teacher explained the answer to a question and I’m pretty sure I got a 100%. Alright, that’s a bit too high up there. 90s for sure. But it is only a quiz so it won’t help my grade all that much, but hey, I’ll take any victory.

4th Period (14:15-15:30)
Visual Arts
More chromatic circles! Although for us 10th graders (we’re a mixed class of 10th to 12th graders), are going to be making lettrines (don’t have a clue what it is in English), but this basically :


Except, I’m not looking forward to doing something with the letter of my first name. “A” has never been a good letter to draw with, for me anyway. I suppose I could do “F” for my last name, I’m sure it’s allowed, because our teacher allowed to use the letter of someone’s else’s name, but it still has to represent yourself. If I use “F”, I could add something French in there, because my ancestors are from France, the furthest back in Normandy (actually have a history book about our genealogy next to me). I could use the blue, white and red colours of the flag then. Oh! While I’m at it, white and red could also represent Canada’s flag, since I am Canadian! I need to write this down.

After School
I watched some YouTube videos, as a person of the Internet like I would typically do, and then I ate Chinese for the first time in forever. It’s expensive, but it’s the type of food I could eat for the rest of my life and would not complain. Vegetable (or was it egg?) rolls, chicken balls with the sweet and sour sauce (my favourite, actually no, they all are) and white rice. The rice was harder this time, but still good and I’m so full that I couldn’t eat much of my chocolate. I’ll explode, so forget eating a snack later for my iron supplements. Speaking about that, apparently I almost died—alright, that’s an exaggeration. My iron was dangerously low, which explained why I had such pale skin. I’m still pale, but at least I’m not a ghost anymore.
   I have to review some French, but I really don’t want to, to be honest. I guess I will read a little, but it’s hard to fail this exam and hence I’m not worried, but still nervous, because it is still an exam.

That’s all for today.
